VCP • Codan Communications

The Codan Virtual Control Point (VCP) application enables operation of your Codan HF SDR transceiver with the convenience of a PC or tablet style device.

Using either a wired or Wi-Fi connection, VCP seamlessly integrates your device and a Codan SDR HF radio, allowing full radio functionality at locations remote or local to the radio.

The VCP replicates physical control point functionality, allows simultaneous control across multiple devices or control of multiple transceivers from one device, and presents the opportunity to expand control of your communication network further than ever before.

VCP puts control where you need it, by centralising radio network control for improved situational awareness and providing enhanced ease of use by operating from familiar devices.

System configurations

A typical Codan Envoy HF base system allows multiple laptops, desk PCs or tablets to connect via an IP network to the remote RFU/Antenna location. Access points on the same network can be utilised to enable operation of the HF radio system via devices running the VCP application.

Similarly, a typical Codan Envoy vehicle system uses a SmartLink to provide a Wi-Fi access point for the laptop or tablet to be running the VCP application. Depending on the location and type of Wi-Fi antenna used, the HF radio can be accessed a considerable distance from the vehicle, whether this be via laptop or tablet.

Auto Connect

VCP will automatically connect to an RFU on an in range Wired/Wi-Fi network if there is only one connected transceiver, ensuring that getting on-line is easy.

Inbuilt Audio

All audio is routed through the connected device including incoming call notifications.

Access Control

If the connected Codan radio has a User PIN set, then VCP will also require the PIN in order to use the app.

Simple upgrade

VCP does not require any transceiver hardware changes and the required sales option can be software enabled in the field.

Full Radio Control

VCP allows for full transceiver control from a desktop environment whilst working in conjunction with other installed Codan applications.
